Designed by Ming Architects the house offers much more than just the dramatic feature wall clad in river pebbles as it sits snugly between a koi pond on one side and a swimming pool on the other. The multi-level residence was crafted to combine complete privacy with an open living environment that allows the homeowners to easily friends and family.
Wooden shelves in the kitchen usher in more contrast even though they seem completely at ease thanks to the light wooden grain. With the top level housing the master bedroom along with the kids’ rooms each area feels organic spacious and almost picture-perfect. A smart yard and brilliant lighting add the final touches to this perfect idyllic suburban hub.
The living area is open inviting and is draped in a layer of hardwood. It is a bespoke shelf in wood and metal that grabs your attention here and becomes the bright and beautiful focal point of an otherwise neutral setting.
The elegant living area with a double-height kitchen and dining area next to it opens up into the large pavilion outside and the pool area. A fire pit in the corner along with a bench offer a simple relaxation zone even as a pergola with al fresco dining on the other side encourages the homeowners to spend those cool evenings outside. The design of the bedroom is no different with operable doors turning it into an open and enchanting setting filled with natural goodness in absolutely no time. With perforated ceiling panels creating better acoustics and a home crafted to entertain guests with ease this is a Californian escape that cannot help but fall in love with!
The street façade of the home reveals little as its gray exterior promises complete privacy. A vibrant door in orange enlivens the entrance and as you step in you will notice that the home opens up towards the rear garden with a sweeping and cheerful interior.
A neutral color scheme defines much of the interior with large wall art additions bringing in some much needed color. It is the dining room that acts as a transition zone between the interior and the small rear yard even as the living area and kitchen sit at the front.
It is not just the flooring but also the shelves usher in the charm of wood indoors with a sleek staircase in wood and glass connecting the different levels on the home. A series of beautiful pendant lights and understated contemporary décor complete a home that somehow feels like a bit of downtown San Francisco transported to the heart of Perth!
